In conclusion, alumni survey evaluation indicates that Computer Engineering Program currently
satisfies all Program Educational Objectives. Only the first item is at the margin and it has hardly
collected 70 percent in favor answers. The first PEO item is about excellence in industrial or graduate
work in computer engineering, and it is highly appreciated by exit survey. Therefore we do not
propose any modification on its current wording.
Question 5
Suggestions to Current Program Educational Objectives
From 55 suggestions to Current PEO, the followings have been found outstanding:
1- Adaptation to new technologies successfully(1,33,38,50,54,55)
2- To have leadership position in team projects (13,14,15,16,17,22,43,42,43,46).
3- Develop ability in solving problems (22).
4- Present high ethical values along with successful project experience and develop good human
relations who communicate skillfully and highly presentable (26,52).
5- Successful in analysis, production, and testing(34,35 ).
6- Have strong social relations to climb up to director level (9,45,49).
The first item that already exists in our PEO confirms its place. Items 3 and 5 appears like an issue of
program outcomes, rather than the objectives. In conclusion we propose to consider items 2, 4, and 6
to be discussed in future to be included into PEO. However, we do not recommend any change since
the third item of our current PEO contains leadership roles and ethical values which is mentioned in
item-4, and our outcomes contain communicative and social skills at items (g) and (h).
Question 6: It is about Personal Information (Name, Address, etc.)
Question 7. What year did you graduate? [Mezuniyet Yılınız]

Employer survey Report
All program educational objectives are satisfied by a degree of satisfaction of 70% (>3.5/5.0).
It may be noted that 100% of the employers are from the private sector and 77.8% state
that they are willing to employ EMU graduates in the future. However, one employee
indicates that the company is looking for people with higher profiles, which means that the
graduates of EMU are perceived as having lower profiles. Currently, there are no serious
policies to improve the public’s perception of EMU.
Industrial Advisory board meeting report
An Industrial Advisory Board Meeting was held on May 30, 2012 at the Computer
Engineering Department, Room: 113. Five representatives from the industry have
participated in the meeting, together with five academicians from the Computer Engineering
Department. The industrial representatives were from four different companies or
organizations.
The focal point of the discussion was what kind of a computer engineers the industry is
looking for, how further improvements can be done, and the state of the computer industry
in the country. Holding further meetings in the future was decided.
The programs at the EMU Computer Engineering Department were introduced to the
industrial representatives. Two of the representatives who are graduates of this department
stated their opinions on the recent changes of the Computer Engineering program and on
the more recent Software Engineering program. Overall, they stated opinion that the EMU
Computer Engineering graduates are, in general, work as successful engineers in the
industry. The representatives emphasized that they are looking for engineers who are
prepared to learning new things by themselves and able to take initiative in the projects.
